Oral Presentations

Speaker notifications have been sent. If you did not receive a notification about your abstract, please contact sqa@sqa.org. The preliminary program will be announced in February 2019. The program is subject to change. Please watch for updates on this website.

All sessions are 90 minutes. If your presentation is one of three in a session, you have 25 minutes to present. This gives time for transition and questions and answers. If you want more time for questions and answers, please shorten your talk as needed. There will be a session chair to help you stay on time, but your presentation should be prepared with this timing in mind. We strongly encourage you to rehearse your presentation ahead of time. Presentation Instructions will be posted on this page after speaker notifications have been made.


Speakers are required to attend the Annual Meeting and pay registration fees in accordance with the published fee schedule, at least for the day of their presentation. Confirmed oral presenters receive $100 off the full meeting registration rates and $50 off 1-day registration rates. Coupon codes will be provided for speakers to use when registering. The early rate deadline is Friday, 29 March 2019.

If you are a confirmed speaker for the Annual Meeting, please download the "I'm speaking" badge and use it to let your colleagues know that you will be presenting.

PowerPoint presentations are due to SQA on Monday, 15 April 2019. You will be able to update your slides after that date, but you must send SQA a final version at least 24 hours prior to your session. Please do not submit more than two versions.
